Nosh Box: As Irish as Kung Pao Chicken

Named for the Roman god of war, month-wise, March shows a checkered past and offers a mottled future. Julius Caesar was stabbed on the Ides of March. Despite this timing, the month of July—and not the salad—remains his principal namesake. March has emerged as the center of the U.S. collegiate basketball universe. This month an annual bracketed tournament for 68 teams will crown a national champion through competitive elimination, aptly dubbed “March Madness.” On the religious front, Easter sometimes occurs as early as March 22, and Passover often begins in March. Weather-wise, March is the first month of spring. As to festivities, it’s the month when Americans celebrate National Nutrition, Women’s History, Fire Prevention, the American Red Cross, and—on March 17—St. Patrick’s Day.

Nosh Box: Good Times Brewing in February

It may seem contrarian to hold the grandest celebration of craft beers during the year’s coldest month. But if rehydration is all you seek, just drop a chunk of change to swill overpriced, plastic bottles of glitzy water or sports drink, hyped up with drugstore vitamins and miracle ingredients—like fructose, sodium chloride, and food coloring. But craft beer is far more than a retro thirst quencher. With a brewing history nearly 40 centuries old, just like wine it pairs well with foods, tastes great, and brings folks together. Exemplifying the latter, The Good Hop in Oakland, a woman-owned craft beer shop, features gatherings for women in the beer industry.
